Kraig Kahn, Chief Communications Officer for the LPGA, promised us a big week of announcements and he has not let us down.
Just a few days ago, Commissioner Michael Whan, on behalf of the LPGA, announced a three year partnership with transcontinental railway Canadian Pacific to become the title sponsor of the Canadian Women's Open. That seems to be just the beginning.
The LPGA announced today that the best players in women’s golf will head to Grand Rapids, Mich. for the first time in more than a decade to take part in the inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic, which will be held August 7-10, 2014 at Blythefield Country Club.
This will be the LPGA's first stop in Michigan since 2000 when the Oldsmobile Classic in East Lansing ended its 9-year run.
The $1.5 million Meijer LPGA Classic will host a full-field of 144 players playing 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition.
I am looking forward to more announcements in the near future.
